Additional Causes Supported by the Albertsons Companies Foundation

Albertsons Companies Foundation supports causes that impact our customers’ lives. Our stores provide the opportunity to mobilize funding and create awareness in our neighborhoods through our associates’ passion, partnerships with our vendors and the generous contributions by our customers.


On a National level, our priority is eradicating Hunger in our neighborhoods. Specifically, we actively seek out organizations that feed our neighbors. If your organization is working in this space, please visit our Nourishing Neighbors page to look for any open RFP opportunities.


Organizations we fund must serve the community where we operate. To learn more about our operating area, please either select your store by clicking ‘Change’ at the top of this website or view our online map at Albertsons.com.


Although we would love to help everyone, the Foundation generally does not fund:

  • Individuals or for-profit organizations
  • Political organizations or activities
  • Religious organizations for religious purposes
  • Capital or building campaigns
  • Advocacy programs
  • Meetings, conferences, or workshops
  • Sports teams or athletic competitions
  • Other foundations or granting organizations
  • Fundraising dinners, galas, and events. We generally do not sponsor these events because the sponsorship is not fully deductible and because we prefer that our funds go directly to program services rather than offset event expenses.

Our Foundation does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring, and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, clients, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, and clients. A nondiscrimination policy will be requested of all applicants.

How to apply

To apply for a grant, you must fill out an online application. The online system will triage the requests and send them to the appropriate geographic team for consideration. It will take approximately 6 weeks from the close of the application cycle for us to get back to you on the status of the grant.

Who we work with

We work with existing and new partners that we proactively seek out and identify as collaborators to achieve our mission and goals. Grants made in a limited geography will be considered by the local Public Affairs Staff (new link to come). 

TIP: To Strengthen Your Application – Include an Employee Sponsor

On the online application, you will be asked if you have a sponsor and then offered the opportunity to provide their name. We will contact that employee to learn more about your work before the application is considered. Typically, an employee sponsor is a volunteer, board member, or someone who has been helped by your organization. If you cannot identify an employee in your ranks, we recommend you speak to your local Store Manager to see if they would be willing to sponsor.

Please note: All applications in California, Hawaii, and Reno-area Nevada require an employee sponsor.

A core area of giving and outreach for Albertsons Companies and Albertsons Companies Foundation is in Disaster Relief. When our neighborhoods are struck by disaster, our associates and stores respond by reaching out to their neighbors and addressing their needs. When hurricanes, wildfires, and other disasters destroy parts of our nation and impact our customers and associates, our stores rally to raise funds and donate food and supplies to assist our first responders and the people in our neighborhoods who were left devastated.
